Fans of Stephen Langstaff will be interested in the following piece of news about something that’s happening tonight – Wednesday 22nd April. We’ll let Jay explain…
Stephen been asked by an agent for Universal Music to go to an audition on Wednesday 22nd April. Apparently they’re looking for a male singer from ‘The North’ to sign a deal with. It sounds exciting but at the same time we’ve got no idea what it’s really about! Stephen will be asked to perform one song of his own on the night.
Obviously, this isn’t a gig but the audition is at the Walkabout in Concert Square and it’s free entry so if you are free that night and can come and support Stephen while he does his audition, that would be fantastic!
p.s. With the May 15th show @ o2 Academy getting closer and closer, coming down to this audition might be an opportunity for you to get your ticket for it – preparations going really well for it with a few surprises lined up for the set list!!
p.p.s Video of Stephen performing ‘Does It Matter?’ on inexcess tv show is now on his facebook profile – go and have look!!

Karen Cleary – from a musical family, Karen has previously been in her own girl band, and a Corrs tribute band.
Tony Kehoe – fresh from a recent gig where he supported Martin Carthy, Tony has just completed his second album. Read the review of it here.
The 10p Mixes – quirky, musical, and lots of fun! How many other musicians sing about the need for a coat on a windy day, or how the dogs in Frace bark in a French accent?
Doors open at 8.00pm and the music starts at 8.30pm.
Entrance is £4 on the door, or £3 in advance from contact[at]liverpoolacoustic.co.uk
And in response to a couple of emails we’ve received…. Yes, there is a fully licensed bar at the venue!
By the way, if you’re not sure about whether or not to attend on Friday night then take a couple of minutes to read the review by a visitor to last month’s event which we’ve been given permission to re-publish here.
